Estartit Car Hire

There are so many fascinating places of interest to visit within easy reach of Estartit that you may want to hire a car for some or all of your stay here.

With a hired car you'll be able to explore the delightful rocky coves which pepper the wild and rugged coastline of the Costa Brava either side of the resort.

In the hinterland, there are some enchanting medieval towns to visit including Castelló d´Empúries-Empuriabrava, 30 kilometres north of Estartit near the popular resort of Roses. Places of interest in the town include the 14th century Santa Maria Gothic cathedral, the 11th century Santa Clara Covent, the Count's Palace and the 14th century medieval jail.

One of the top tourist spots in the region is the Salvador Dali museum at Figueres, just 40 kilometres to the north west of Estartit. The museum houses some of this extraordinary artist's most famous works.


You can visit the Salvador Dali House Museum at the picturesque marine village of Cadaques, 50 kilometres north along the coast.

Try to find time for a day trip to Barcelona which has to rank as one of the world's most beautiful cities. The fairytale cathedral, mind-blowing Gaudi architecture and famous fountains are often the most treasured memories of visitors to this part of Spain. Don't miss a stroll along the pedestrianised Las Ramblas with its colourful flower stalls and street cafes.

The kids will enjoy a day out at Water World, Europe's biggest water park near Lloret de Mar. Marine World, just south of Blanes about 75 kilometres down the coast, is a good family day out with a range of attractions including dolphin and sea lion shows.

Local hotels, travel agents and car hire firms all supply rental cars but if you're holidaying in high season make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment. You'll be more comfortable with air conditioning if you're traveling in July or August.
